A stunning contemporary cottage set within 0.41 acres of grounds, just two miles from Stone.
The CottageCarefully considered in every way, The Cottage has been meticulously refurbished and rebuilt to become the ideal family home it is today. A phenomenal range of reclaimed materials have been used throughout with the majority being locally sourced including solid flagstones, veined slate sills and Staffordshire bullnose brick. A reclaimed Staffordshire blue brick crescent terrace leads to the fully glazed entrance hall with feature cast iron spiral staircases. A doorway leads through to the rebuilt section of the house which accommodates the exceptional dual aspect sitting room which is part panelled with feature herringbone flooring; the Contura wood burner set within a blue brick fireplace offers a delightful focal point to this spacious room. Off the opposite side of the entrance hall is a further hallway, off which is the guest WC. The hallway continues along to the open plan kitchen dining room. Exquisitely designed and considered, the kitchen is the ideal family living space and offers sitting, dining and kitchen areas. The sitting area has bi-fold doors that open to the sunken terrace, whilst the kitchen area comprises a range of wall and floor cabinetry with a central island by Plan & Simple Knutsford, all set beneath a solid marble worksurface. Integrated appliances include a re-enamelled AGA, dishwasher, combi oven, wine fridge and a 70/30 fridge freezer. A dining area is located off the end of the kitchen and offers delightful dual aspect views from windows and French doors. One set of wrought iron stairs rise from the entrance hall to the principal suite. This exceptional bedroom suite is within the rebuilt portion of the house and offers views of the surrounding countryside. The spacious bedroom area benefits from fitted wardrobes as well as a large storage cupboard, with the open plan en suite area offering a copper finished roll top bath as well as a separate shower. Accessed via the other wrought iron staircase, the remaining bedroom accommodation offers three good sized bedrooms, a large study area and a contemporary family shower room. Garden and Grounds Entered via a pair of electric gates, the driveway winds through the gardens and opens to a spacious driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles. A detached double garage with power and light is complemented by a double oak framed carport. Wrapping around one side of The Cottage is a delightful stream bordering the sunken terrace which benefits from heaters and lighting. The remainder of the garden plot is laid to lawn. In all the plot totals 0.41 acres.
